Altamont Names President's Volunteer Service Award Winners
Julie Beckwith

On April 9, 2018, The Altamont School held an assembly in the Cabaniss-Kaul Center for the Arts honoring upper school students who earned a 2017 President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA). Each PVSA recipient was presented with a personalized certificate, a medallion, and a letter from the President of the United States.

In addition, Altamont 7th grader Zoe Browning was presented with an award for her work in overhauling the middle school Service Corps, which included organizing volunteer projects at Red Mountain Park, Community Food Bank, and Children's Fresh Air Farms.

PVSA is an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service and is administered by Points of Light. Through a shared mission of inspiring more to answer the call to service, PVSA celebrates the impact we can all make in bettering our communities and our world. Volunteer hours are measured over a 12-month period and awards are designated based on cumulative hours. Learn more about the award at
